Day - 68 Coffee & Cream
ISO 400 f/5.6 1/200s @ 105mm
1 SB-26 @ 70mm 1/32nd power behind high camera left aimed at background.
1 SB-800 @ 50mm 1/64th power shoot through umbrella camera left with white foam board camera right for fill.
After the fun I had yesterday taking a picture of the candle, I wanted to step it up a bit after seeing my ugly countertop in the photo. For this shot, I used a baby blanket for the background and rummaged through Leela's sewing cabinet for a nice piece of fabric to cover the table. Having no background or reflector stands I resorted to using my dinning room chairs instead. The reflector camera right is clamped to a chair, and the blanket used as background is suspended between two chairs using clothes pins. This adorable cat creamer was found at my local coffee roster The Kaffeeklatsch.

I didn't have my tablet with me to handwrite the notes into the photos but, I added all of the flash setting notes into the photos. Post Processing included only saturation adjustment and I desaturated the pink reflection on the cat. With the weather getting warmer I should really go shoot outside, but I really wanted to take a second shot at a still life photo and I am happy with the results I got this time.
